This is a good guide for a beginner in hydrangea cultivation with plenty of tips and advice. It is perhaps lacking in more detailed info such as the ways to modify soil condition when acidity needs changing, as would be required by the experienced expert. Recommended.

A valuable reference for hydrangea lovers 13 Jun. 2000
By Phillip O. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the most comprehensive source of information on hydrangeas that I have ever seen. There is detailed advice on every aspect of growing hydrangeas, including soil preparation, watering, and the effects of color in hydrangeas due to soil content. Generous illustrations show the different types of leaves on the various types of hydrangeas. The most valuable part of the book is a section devoting a full page to specific varieties and shows a photo, characteristics in chart format and a detailed narrative description. This book is well worth the price!

Most comprehensive authority on Hydrangeas 1 Feb. 2001
By J King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the best book on hydrangeas in print today. Only one other (Hydrangeas, by Millet) even comes close. Because this book is so well organized, it is extemely easy to learning all about hydrangeas - their botanical structure, the different species and how they grow. One can immediately see the differences between hydrangeas - how large they will get, how large their blooms will be, what colors they might become, and the shape of the bloom. The illustrations are beautiful and leave one dreaming of a garden full of these beauties.

Hydrangeas 4 Sept. 2005
By dragonflyfae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I like this book, but don't love it. I would have liked to have more information on an extended variety of Hydrangeas. However, not knowing the species names maybe I misunderstood. It is useful in how to care for, plant, and choose the right plant. I would recommend it for a Hydrangea lover.
